Quercus phellos

Quercus phellos

Oak - Willow

Willow Oak is a lovely versatile native Oak which grows well in both country and city conditions.  The habit is a broad oval, without the descending branch habit of Pin Oaks, so Quercus phellos makes a very attractive street tree.  The Willow shaped leaves are much easier to deal with than those of other members of the Red Oak family because of their small size.  The foliage turns an attractive dull gold in fall and is often retained for much of the winter as tan rustling leaves.  The small acorns are an important food source for many birds and mammals.
